HMSHost is playing a role in the re-envisioning of KLIA’s food and beverage offerings to enhance the overall traveller experience, surprising guests by bringing new and exciting brands to the Urban Food Court. The stores, already open or still under construction, include popular brands such as Burger King ®, Pizza Hut, the popular Kuala Lumpur-based Ahh-Yum by Kampong Kravers and pastas & WRAPS, and HMSHost’s proprietary brands Asia Street Cooking, Fresh, and Taste of India.
David Mackay, Regional Managing Director Asia Pacific at HMSHost International: “We are very happy and excited to continue our partnership with KLIA through our long-term business partner, Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB). The opportunity to create a different guest experience at the airport is a challenge we are made for; our extensive brand portfolio and strong local relationships helped us to curate a perfect selection of brands, from which we could create a beautiful guest experience.”
MAHB’s re-envisioning of the airport’s retail space is part of its reset program, which aims to draw passengers back to the airport through an improved guest experience. In line with these goals, HMSHost International took the opportunity to redefine the traveller’s experience, identifying a brilliant selection of brands and concepts for the redevelopment.
